Wearing Masks and Social Distancing to Protect Other People

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the CDC recommends that you should cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when in public, or when you are around other people.

You DO NOT need to use a face mask meant for a healthcare worker.

A cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing. Keep six feet of distance between yourself and other people. How to wear a cloth face cover.
